The Lynch Bages 1989 is a huge wine that needs even more time to show it’s full potential. On the palate it’s showing some mature notes with cedar being most prominent. There are however also hints of the quite massive youthful frut in the wine. On the palate very concentrated and dense, with a lot of fruit and quite a firm backbone underneath. Still need 10 years to fully show the potential. This is a very fine wine, but still I would love some more complexity.
(Drink from 2020) Very Fine perhaps even Outstanding – 94p

- Winehog Awards – affordable and enjoyable wines in focus The focus on drinkable and at least somewhat affordable wines has led to the initiation of the Winehog Award. I know that most wines with an 86-point rating often are overlooked and forgotten, while the 93-point Malconsorts gets more attention.The fact is, however, that I often can find as much pleasure in an 86-point Bourgogne Rouge ...
- What are we drinking? Cathiard Malconsorts x 3 A few weeks back, I was at a tremendous tasting where three bottles of Cathiard Malconsorts were opened as an extra treat at the end of the event. The trio of 2014, 2015 and 2016 is a display of Vosne supremacy. Not many wines outside the appellation are a match for a Cathiard firing on all ...
- Njord Pinot Noir Précoce 2018 – Mr. Solaris reporting from the Zealand Alps In the summer of 2016 I had an enlightening experience, as I tasted the first truly interesting and enjoyable Danish wine: Njord, made from Pinot Noir Précoce, an early-ripening variant of the Burgundian stalwart. I have therefore followed the Njord project ever since, and while it is very exciting, the journey of Sune Albertsen – the ...
- Terroir Insight: Domaine Jean-Jacques Confuron Romanée-Saint-Vivant In my view, Romanée-Saint-Vivant is one of the most sensual and enchanting of the grands crus. The perfumed refinement of a great RSV is almost unmatched (aside from two monopoles just above the vineyard). Domaine J-J Confuron is one of the less prominent producers within this fine vineyard, and given the improvement from some of the ...
- What are we drinking? Double bubbles, and the last lunch A fine tasting – that for me apparently marked the end of an era in Copenhagen indulgence – was held on September 26th in the form of my last Enomania lunch: Damiano and his team will in future only be open evenings. The lunch sessions at Enomania have always been very special and enjoyable, as good ...
- Domaine Trapet-Rochelandet … the lesser-known Trapet There’s Trapet, and then there’s the less-well-known Trapet-Rochelandet … In Gevrey-Chambertin, the relatively unknown Domaine Trapet-Rochlandet has an interesting, substantial portfolio of vineyards, including a plot in the delightful Ruchottes-Chambertin. In July, I had the pleasure of visiting the estate, located in the heart of Gevrey-Chambertin just opposite the Rotisserie du Chambertin on the Rue du Chambertin. At ...
- Comte Armand Clos des Epeneaux – the Monopole Pommard is an appellation of clos (walled vineyards) and quite a few monopoles. While the definitions of clos and monopole are pretty clear and straightforward, the vineyards in Pommard sometimes take on somewhat strange permutations to attain these vaunted distinctions. A Wineghog reader last week was looking at maps and noticed that the Clos des Èpeneaux vineyard ...
- What are we drinking? On the border between old and new school! Not many people know this, but I am a member of the Commanderie de Bordeaux in Copenhagen (although honestly, I see little use for this membership). Bordeaux can be lovely but, sadly, rarely is these days, with global warming pumping up its wines to 14.5% or 15% … even 16%!? That said, this week I had the ...
